Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber: The Rosary Sonatas / Andrew Manze, violin; Richard Egarr, organ & harpsichord

Notes & Reviews:

The Rosary Sonatas are one of the most unusual collections of violin music ever assembled. It is primarily this work on which the fame of Biber (1644-1704) rests today. Calling for the violinist to apply a different tuning to the violin for each of its 15 Sonatas, the full set is a triumph of Baroque invention and 17th-century virtuoso style. Originally released in 2004, the Gramophone Award-winning partnership of Andrew Manze and Richard Egarr met this challenge with dazzling results.
